The software for the 9XR first began development 6 years ago. Since then it has been tweaked, tuned, changed, updated and revamped by members of the R/C community into a powerful - yet easy to use interface. Our engineers designed the physical product around the R/C communities software changes and input. The culmination of all these is the Turnigy 9XR!
For many users this will be the perfect 9 channel radio straight out of the box, but there are many tinkerers out there who love modifying and pushing the boundaries of what is possible from their radio.We have factory fitted the 9XR with an AVR ISP header to simplify the development of custom software, we have launched turnigy9xr.com as the epicentre for software developers and additional community support for all 9XR users......With the 9XR we encourage it!
The 9XR is supplied preloaded with top quality software which is full of features and yet remains easy to use. Our aim was to develop a radio for you, the hobbyist,with an extensive list of standard features usually expected from a radio system 3 times the price. Our Turnigy 9XR is everything you imagined and more!

Thanks- I got it working kind of. Took out the module and put it back in, seems like it wasn't connected or seated properly. So I got it to control the servos on the airplane, but can't get it to arm the kk2 board. I can't find anything in the manual to help. Maybe just some more trial and error. Sounds like Jerome is using the same setup, hopefully he can give me some pointers...
Have you had the KK2 board arming previously? Try adjusting the trims throtle down and Rudder right. Make sure you get full deflection in the KK2 Rx test mode.
If not does the 9XR show full deflection on the throttle and Rudder channels? This is a common reason for not arming. Check for all channels set to 100% in Mixer table (5/11).
I just got the 9XR and am using the module from a 9X, but can't figure out how to get it to work. The red light is coming on the Tx, so it is getting a signal. Does anyone know what I need to do to get it to work. I have tried it on my quad and a plane but can't get the servos to do anything. What are the settings I need to use the 9x module? Thanks!!!!
Don't know for sure, but as I understand it, the 9x module hooked directly to the 9x's internal antenna and does not have antenna of its own. The 9xr also has an internal antenna just for the 9x module you will need to set that up. You can attache to the antenna through the whole in the top right corner of the module insert. Also make sure the proto setting is ppm. Beyond that, all I can think of is making sure all your channels are set up properly but I imagine if you owned a 9x you probably already have those.
Hope that helps.
I tried to do the firmware update, but nothing seems to have stuck.
Has anyone done the upgrade with open9x, has encountered problems during the operation?
I noticed that the right side of the trimmer gas, not the center mark, that's it or is it a defect of this controller.
Battery for Transmitter: the Turnigy 9XR Safety Protected 11.1v (3s) 2200mAh 1.5C Transmitter Pack (USA warehouse)
Rx/Tx Module: You need a transmitter module to get this radio to work and the associated receiver. I use FrSky but it's largely personal preference.
Make sure the transmitter module is a JR compatible module as the futaba ones don't work.
List of the ones I know of from hobby king:
OrangeRx Open LRS 433MHz TX Module (9171000146)
FrSky DF 2.4Ghz Combo Pack for JR (DJT)
FrSky XJT 2.4Ghz Combo Pack for JR (9171000146)
FrSky DJT 2.4Ghz Combo Pack for JR (JR-Combo)
OrangeRx Open LRS 433MHz TX (9171000146)
Also, I believe Corona and Assan also have modules.
I, along with someone else I know, received our 9XR today. The gimbals feel MUCH nicer, and it is a big improvement. It fits the product ID : ZIP25003S3C nicely. The balance connector should be farther down, because it puts a little stress on the wires. Haven't actually flew with it yet, as I am waiting on my DJT module.

Wooww, T9xR is t arrived. Looks a little funny. Not really nice but I'll get used to it. I use the Nano Tech 3s 2500mA Lipo from the old T9x. But I had to extend the balancer. Soldering is announced. I use the Corona module with CR8D's receivers, has arrived today. This works very well. (Set a range of about 2 km have) The T9xR lies well in the hand, but it is not a sensation for the 6 years of development time. But it works, the software is good and I'm satisfied. For only $ 49 almost a gift. I was in the air now with my big Quad and must say, its no difference to the old T9xR, a little trimming and is like before. Only the new FW, i like it.

likes:- looks good , display is brighter than 9x , sticks have a better feel , takes a standard 3s lipo jst connector , which means pretty much any 2200mah 3s battery will fit.
Dislikes :- "star" selection button is poor . 12v charge socket goes direct to lipo jst connector , no ballancer so lipo will be damaged if you connect an industry standard tx charger to it. software isn't compatable with "companion 9x" so you can't connect it easily to a pc or load your existing models to the radio without wiping 9xr hex file.

Great radio. much better quality that the 9X. It definitely looks better in person compared to the pictures IMO. the gimbals feels good. switches feel really good. the whole ergonomics of the 9XR is OK, felt better. battery bay is quite big but the connector is not in an ideal place. Here is my review on youtube http://youtu.be/VH37smjFk94

Much nicer than the 9x. Nice bright screen. The switches seem to be easier to reach. Battery compartment is improved with the included piece of foam. Plastic handle feels more solid than the 9x's thin metal tube. Gimbals feel like they are higher quality. The power switch doesn't feel so cheap either. Once you put a battery in it the weight is not bad and it has a solid feel. Also like having both Futaba and JR trainer ports. The only thing I would change would be to remove the exclamation point after READY.
